Biographical Note

Eulalie Salley lived in Aiken, South Carolina and was the wife of the mayor. She joined the South Carolina Equal Suffrage League (SCESL) and began to attend national events as well. By 1919, she was elected president of the SCESL. Although the 19th Amendment passed in the United States in 1920, South Carolina rejected the Amendment. Salley worked hard to get the law passed, and in 1969, she stood with Governor Robert McNair as he signed the law.
